Warriors to Workers
Freifeld, Lorri
Training, v47 n5 p14-18 Sep-Oct 2010
Pentagon data reveals that more than 1.6 million military personnel have been deployed to the Middle East since the war in Afghanistan began in late 2001. But when they return home, these veterans face an extraordinary high unemployment rate. This article describes the transitional and technical training provided by two nonprofit groups (the Wounded Warrior Project and the United Association of Plumbers, Pipefitters and Sprinklerfitters (UA) Veterans In Piping (VIP) Program) to returning veterans and the career opportunities and mentors offered by companies such as AlliedBarton.
